Ordinance Prepared by Special
Cornrnittee, Which Council
Will Be Urged to Adopt in
Time to Apply to Next
Election?Strong Mem?
bers Support It.
Cutting the Common Council and I
Board of Aldermen exactly in half, the
special committee on changes in the
form of city government last night
unanimously recommended to the Coun?
cil for ad<>ption an ordinance redis
trictlng the city Into four wards of
approximately equal population. The
measure provides for a Council of
twenty members, a Board of twelve,
and eventually for Boards of Dollce
and Fire Commissioners, composed of
four each. The ordinance Is entirely
independent of the pending plan for j
creation of an administrative board,
and complies with the State law, which
makes it mandatory on councils of
cities a,fter each decennial census to j
redistnet the city into wards of ap
proxlmately equal population.
i.lnfR of Four Wards. I
Generally speaking, . the plan pro- ]
poses the creation of Jefferson Ward,
embracing all of the city east of Elgh- j
teenth Street: Mndlson Wnrd, the cen?
tre section between Eighteenth and
Third, north of Main, Park Avenue and
all Islands In James River; Lee Ward,
composed of all of the . city west of
Third, north of main. Park Avenue and
.Stuart Avenue, and Clay Ward, the re?
maining section west of Third and '
south of Main. Park Avenue and Stuart
Avenue. The lines were carefully pre?
pared by the City Attorney's office,
with t'.ie assistance of Special Account?
ant Crenshaw and Clerk F. T. Bates,
of the engineer's office, who complied
an enormous mass of statistics hear?
ing on population But one change
was made in the draft presented. Mr.
Don Leavy securing a shift of the line
between Clay and Dec Wards from
Gra- lo Main at the eastern end. and
from Hanover to Stuart Avenue at the.
western, leaving practically, the same
population basis.
Under the plan adopted the judge nt
the Hustings Court Isfrequested to ap?
point commissioners to rearrange the
lists of voters at the various precincts
to conform to the new lines, and It Is
proposed that the sprint; election noxi
June and the primary preceding shall
be on the new lines, so that the Council
based on the nert' election will take of?
fice from September 1 next.
Hold-Over Aldermen.
The most difficult part of. the prob?
lem presented was that of tho "hold?
over" members of the Board of Alder?
men. The entire lower hrum-h ?omes
up for re-election next spring, so that
all members have an equal chance In
the reduced membership before the
people. But thirteen members of the
Hoard hold over for another two years.
These are Messrs. Adams, Bllley. Dona
hoe, Don Deavy. Gllmnn, Grimes,
Grundy, Gunst, Melton, Mitcholl, Kel?
sen, Perdue end Powers. Since to put
any plan of reduction Into effect some
must suffer for the good of the city at
large, tho ordinance, an. adopted prnc
tlcally legislates out of ofllco all other
Aldermen, leaving tho above members
to compose the Board for two years
from next September,'with the excep?
tion of one vacancy In Clay Word,

Robert E. Peary delivered the closing
address of the annual convention ot
the Atlantic Deeper Waterways Asso?
ciation last night before an audience
which packed the Jefferson Auditorium.
The pictures Included those taken by
Admlral Peary himself, of course col?
ored and treated so as to make them
suitable for use In this manner.
The man whose achievement ended
the efforts of centuries was given a
warm welcome to Richmond. He was
preceded in the hall by Mrs. Peary and
the members of his party, who were
given seats by the side of Governor
and Mrs. Mann. When, a moment later,
the admiral entered the auditorium ho
was greeted by general cheering, Con?
gressman John Lamb having paused
In his remarks to permit the audience
to witness the entrance. Again, on
taking the platform on the arm of Pres?

His lecture, If that word be correct,
merely skimmed the surface of a nar?

often arranged without regnrd to se?
quence, each explained In a few words
by the speaker. Plainly, his life had
been devoted to action and to stern
bravery and endurance, rather tlnin to
practicing the nrls of a platform speak?
er. Vot h;* style was not uiipleoslng.

respect during his more recent experi?
Admiral Peary showed an Intelligent
interest In the serious business of the
Atlantic Deeper Waterways Associa?
tion. He discussed the Intracoastrtl
plan In a way which demonstrated his
knowledge of the subject and his grns;i
of the situation, introduced by Cap
lain Limb, who was the presiding nHi -
cer of tin- evening. Admiral Pearv said:
? I am grateful for the reception you
have given me and am glad to speak
of the Imperial subject which brought
you to this city?thut of waterways.
The natural ? waterways of the world
have hutlded cities and made nations
For artificial waterways na'lons und

"An example which readily occurs tf/

Basic Principles Are
Same as in First
Capital Would Be $300,000,000,
and United States Government
and Banks Owning Shares
the Only Depositors?For?
mer Unsettled Points
Definitely Treated.
Washington, October 19.?Former'
Senator Nelson W. Aldrich, of Rhoda
Island, to-day submitted to the Xa-|
tlonai Monetary Commission, of which j
he is chairman, a revision of his plan
for monetary legislation. The com?
mittee may use It as the basis of Its,
recommendations to Congress.
The basic principles of the revised
plan arc substantially the same as
those embodied In Mr. Aldrich's first1
proposal, sent to the commission last
January, which he said he expected
would serve as a basis for national
discussion. Important phases which
'were then unsettled and those which
have since been evolved are tre-itcd
In the recommendations sent to the j
committee to-day.
A Reserve Association.
Briefly, the plan still provides for
the organization of the national re-!
serve association, w.lth capital of ap
pfoxtmately J300,OOO.OOO, In which the
United States government and the
Ibnnks owning shares In the associa?
tion shall be the only depositors. The
plan of dividing the United States at
first into fifteen financial districts re?
mains unchanged. In each district the
banks shall form local associations of
their own, which In turn will be rep?
resented in t'he branches and finally In
the central organization through a
system of election of directors, which,'
it Is said,,will make It impossible for
nny section or set of lhankers to control
the whole. To provide for the ?730,
000 000 of 2 per cent. government
bonds now owned by the national
banks and used as the basis of note
circulation, which are to be absorbed
by the reserve association, the follow?
ing plan Is proposed:
Upon the appllc.-tlon of the reserve
association, the Secretary of the Treas?
ury shall exchange the 2 per cent,
bonds, which the association will buy
from the banks at par and accrued in?
terest, for a new Issue of n per cent. I
securities, payable fifty yenrs after ''iej
date of issue.
The reserve association will pay to
the government a special franchise
tax of 1 1-2 per cent, per year on the
amount of such bonds. As the govern?
ment's actual Interest charge on the]
2 per cents. Is actually 1 1-l* per cent.,]
since the banks pay back a half of 1
per cent', as a tax when the bonds are
used ns the busts of note circulation,!
this will reimburse the government for
tho extra Interest It will be called up?
on tn pny as a result of exchanging
the 2'a for Vr..
One effect.of the exchange will he tol
enable the government to provide per?
manently for a large portion of thel
interest-bearing public deht at a not'
Interest charge of 1 1-2 per rent. Tills
arrangement proposes n solution of
what many financiers declnred the
greatest ohntaclo to the plan. It dis?
poses permanently of the bond-secured
currency without a loss to the gnvrrr.

j the $730,000.000 2 per cent, bonds.
